Learn about tools and materials. Construct basic earrings with headpins and beads. Create an 18" necklace on cable wire and learn how to finish with crimps. These techniques will launch you confidently into the world of bead stringing and design in just two hours.
Supplies: Basic Class Kit (available at the register) and enough beads in colors and styles you like to fill 18" of cord. Larger beads and a simple design for your first effort will save stringing time, allowing more time in class to concentrate on techniques. For earrings, bring a few extra beads with holes large enough to fit on headpins.
